Limitations and Known Issues
The following table lists the known issue with the CY3274 Rev. ** board.
Defect
Workaround
On the I C and ISSP header, the
silkscreen labels for the data (marked
“D”) and clock (marked “C”) pins are
swapped. However, the pins have the
correct orientation for working with the
MiniProg and CY3240 USB-I2C bridge.
If using these headers for probing, note that
the “D” pin has the clock and the “C” pin has
the data.
